Eyal checkpoint (terminal), which was opened in 2004, is on the Green Line, at the outskirts of Qalqiliya, south of kibbutz Eyal. Only Palestinians with permits to pass to Israel are allowed through. The permits are in the form of magnetic cards. The intention of the army is to hand its operation over to a private company, but until now it is still operated by the army. 4000 people pass through the checkpoint daily. They have to return from work on the same day and only through this checkpoint.
